Work is a big part of our everyday lives, and executive counseling can help bring positivity into a work environment that has become stressful. Stress is a natural response that occurs when the brain recognizes a threat. Although this response may have been useful in ancient humans, it has transformed into something completely new in modern life. Learning how to deal with this stress in the workplace today can be challenging, especially if you are doing it alone.

Business executives deal with a lot of pressure –– pressure to make sure the company succeeds, pressure in their decisions and of course the pressure of managing hundreds of employees that look to them. These pressures can quickly turn into something bigger in the mind when not dealt with out in the open. This is where executive counseling can help.

What is executive counseling?

Stress is not all bad. Positive stress can give us the drive to excel and perform to the best of our abilities. But when negative stress takes hold, it can be a hard feeling to shake. Negative stress can quickly feel like an overwhelming sense of defeat. To help manage these feelings of stress, we work with successful executives to try and resolve any underlying issues related to their particular stressors in work.

By identifying the root causes of executive stress, we are able to help counsel executives on healthy ways to manage their issues at work and at home. Through behavioral techniques and lifestyle adjustments, the executive is then able to increase effectiveness while achieving a higher level of happiness and satisfaction in life.

When is it time for executive counseling?

Executive counseling is beneficial for any successful businessperson, regardless of title or length of career. Those who are just starting out at a new job and want to learn how to best manage their work can benefit just as much as those who have been in their position for 20+ years. In short, there is no stark identifier for when it is time to get executive counseling. Most clients come to us when they begin to feel overwhelmed, but receiving counseling before that point is just as beneficial.

Executives have the unique power of creating a climate and setting the expectations within their company. This climate depends heavily on the daily mood, processes and demeanor of the executive. Executives have the ability to make work life for their employees either inspirational or miserable. With this power comes a lot of responsibility –– executive counseling can help to bring all of these thoughts and bad habits to the forefront to cope with them in a healthy way.
